They're perfect for the wait at the doctor's office, waiting on a date to show up for dinner, or any scenario of the sort.

Between the two of them, Verizon's app definitely gets the more interesting additions: My Verizon now lets you pay your bill by scanning it via the camera.

Music discovery app Shazam has always been a bit stylish by Android standards, but today's update adds both some more modern visual polish and notable usability upgrades. In particular, the auto-scrolling lyric function has been improved in version 2.6: it now supports a more natural portrait layout and much more readable text, doing away with the funky word art.
